She is a single mother and inspiration to all. The way she moved on from her failed marriage and how she transformed herself after an ugly divorce, her life is really commendable. We are talking about none other than famous Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? actress, Dalljiet Kaur.
There were rumours of Dalljiet’s engagement to a TV producer based out of Australia. Rubbishing all such rumours, Dalljiet said to Bollywood Life, “Oh my god! Are you serious? I have not spoken to him for close to nine months now. Yes, I did know him for a few days.” She was further quoted as saying, “I have nothing to do with this person. I have not seen him since a year. I am absolutely single and happy.” But the 35-year-old actress is looking for a suitable match for an arranged marriage.
The actress remarked, “I am meeting people and trying to find someone who is right for me. I did meet him but this is funny. I have met him thrice in all. I have not seen him in ten months nor spoken to him. He is not even a friend.” She further added, “I did meet him at one point as a normal person. I have not spoken to him since then. I have a small son. I admit I am finally looking for a guy and hoping to find someone. Right now, I don’t have a prospective suitor. This is scary, any guy I will meet can say I am engaged to him!”
For the uninitiated ones, Dalljiet walked down the aisle with actor Shaleen Bhanot on December 9, 2009. But things didn’t work out well for them and the couple decided to part their ways in 2015. The couple has a son, Jaydon whose custody is with his mother. After six years of their marriage, Dalljiet accused Shaleen of physically abusing her and filed a case of domestic violence against him. She also changed her son's name from Shaarav to Jaydon. She wanted to remove the first two alphabets, 'Sh', which is a part of Shaleen's name.
Dalljiet had a drastic transformation when she lost a whopping 33 kgs to get better offers in the television industry and also for the better upbringing of her son. In an earlier interview, when asked if she will ever fall in love again, she retorted, “It's too early to even think about it. Right now I am going through so many uncertainties and trying to settle down everything in my life. I want to kick that person hard who said, 'money can't buy you happiness'. I know what life without money is. My life had become hell without money. I don't decide anything in life so whenever it (love) has to happen, it will happen.”
Talking about her remarriage plans, she earlier said, "I am not in a hurry and I am not getting married tomorrow. But I have no reason to say no. I am okay with my 'Single' Status now, so why not? I am keeping my eyes open for a happy guy." She further stated, “I miss somebody that I can talk about Jaydon to. There are lot of emotions you want to share with only your life partner. I miss having an intelligent conversation with someone who should be in my and my son's future plans. There is a certain vacuum. I have been alone for far too long now.”
She also revealed what qualities she is looking for in her new hubby, “First and foremost, he should be positive, contented and educated. Coming to your question per se, I am certainly not looking for someone who looks 60-years-old. After a certain age, you grow out of those things- like he should be terrific looking- you know. But yes, I obviously want someone who is fit and healthy and certainly not someone who looks old.”
We hope Dalljiet soon finds the right man for her who will complete their family.
